Nice lunch/early happy hour the day of our departure. 3rd visit here, always a fun time! The staff that works there is awesome and very friendly.

“Food better than it looks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

I was surprised by the rather pedestrian appearance of my chicken chimichanga, but it was actually very tasty. Loved the homemade salsa, and the chips were authentic. Decent margarita too.

“Good Burritos!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2012

We visited this place on Tuesday evening after dusk. Place was full and there was one waitress on duty. another guy was clearing dishes, seating people etc but that was not enough. Service was slow and waitress was constantly apologising. We drank Sangria - unfortunately it was only mediocore. Luckily burritos were excellent ("cheesy" chicken burrito). Quesadillas were so-so.

“Excellent chips and salsa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant was very close to Union Square and our hotel. The chips and salsa was excellent. Mix drinks were average. Our waitress was very nice. We ordered mix fajitas and tacos and were very good. I traveled frequently to Mexico and I can say that the flavors in the food at this restaurant were very traditional. A little expensive for a Mexican restaurant but it is SF and pretty much every restaurant here is expensive.
